at the white house. vice president joe biden is here at the white house. chuck hagel, the chairman of the joint chief, martin dempsey, so all of that giving an indication that the president is close to making a decision, but because white house officials are saying this is not about imminent or commenced operations, perhaps we will be hearing about something else. we should also note this administration was set to start briefing members of the senate today, members of the house tomorrow, to fully get them up to speed on what is happen ng syria and so, it will be interesting to find out whether or not the president's comments have any impact. the other thing we should point out and this is just a small, minor thing, is that according to a note distributed to reporters here at the white house, a telepromter has been set up in the rose garen for the president's address. i only say that because yesterday, his comments were very much off the cuff. he had some notes in front of him, but he was not reading from prepared remarks, but this statement indicates that perhaps he will be doing that this afte
the president said he would do when he was a candidate in 2007-2008. let's remember the vice president joe biden, running for president, and in 2007 he was at a new hampshire campaign event where he said as senate foreign relations committee chairman at the time, then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, try to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons and did without congressional approval, joe biden said he would personally lead impeachment charges against then president bush. we see a much different situation going on now. where they are moving forward without congressional approval. you are right. there is pressure. it is not just john cornyn who is significant. not just a rank and file, a leader, the whip, behind mitch mcconnell, the leader, number one. have you democrats as well. joe manchin of west virginia came out last might and said, mr. president, you cannot move forward with any military force without first getting a debate and vote in the house and senate. now, what is the likelihood of that? highly unlikely because we talked to officials in both parties and got lawm
chiefs of staff general martin dempsey and minutes later seen here, vice president joe biden also at the white house. now the administration is telling us this morning that top national security officials will brief members of the senate on a possible u.s. response to the suspected chemical weapons attack by the assad regime. >>> pope francis is making his most significant appointment since becoming the leader of the catholic church. naming a veteran diplomat to become the vatican's secretary of state, tapping arch bish sheep peroline. i'm jamie colby, much more news 30 minutes away. back to "cavuto on business" only here on the fox news channel. >> getting ready now for a cyber war. new reports u.s. officials are preparing for cyber attacks on banks and utilities here in retaliation over any kind of military action against syria, even threatened. this coming on the heels of the so-called syrian electronic army claiming responsibility for hacking some premier american companies. melissa, a lot of this activity already. what can we look forward to? >> i am concerned about this. i t
. they are standing firm behind the president. the president went out and made phone calls to john kerry, joe biden. they finalized the decision this morning. >> we were all glued watching john kerry give this long drawn out dramatic speech about making the case for going, at least some military action, with syria and now this. why put john kerry out there on friday and then less than 24 hours later say, we're going to hold our horses a little bit here? >> reporter: that's a very good question. john kerry will be on the sunday morning talk shows tomorrow morning including state of the union. in some ways john kerry was not only talking about what he thinks and what the administration thinks, he was responding to what was happening around the world. the united nations had really in the minds of the white house had really stimmied this president. they could not go to the u.n. security council and say give us a vote for striking syria because russia was saying no. we're not going to give you that vote. the united kingdom, britain that's always there with the united states just had that traumatic vote
that vice president joe biden, a 30-year senator, was heavily involved in it. he was so far out on the limb it was pathetic. he didn't have backing from the u.s. coming, nato, arab league, denounced by egypt, denounced by jordan. this was a loser. a limited military strike wasn't going to change the situation on the ground. >> general, we have also seen reports that some within the military, actually, wrls concerned about the way the president was proceeding. i would assume this alays some of their concerns as well. >> nobody with eight brain cell who had military experience thought this was a good idea. there was a letter that said don't get involved in a ground civil war. if you do get involved. if you've written your political objective and you want to deter assad from threatening his own people. 100,000 dead. ruined half the country. then use meaningful military american measures. it could destroy the syrian armed forces in 60 days. but not with 200 tomahawks. >> when you hear the president talk about a limited strike. that sounds shorter than 60 days. how realistic do you think it is?
the obama administration with people like joe biden and john kerry who spent years criticizing the bush administration for its unilateralism, doing something that true solid unilateral as opposed to things done in the bush administration like the overthrow of saddam hussein is that had dozens of coalition members with it. >> i asked neither lee. this what's the difference between doing in this way and dropping a drone on somebody in yemen, just on a kill list? >> look, there isn't any difference. the president has full constitutional authority to launch this attack against syria. >> greta: you don't think he has to seek approval? >> absolutely not. >> greta: you disagree with a lot of members of congress who want the approval. >> there is a political question whether he would be better off in getting congressional approval under the theory in on the the take off, in on the landing. but as a matter of constitutional law, there is absolutely no requirement if congress doesn't like what he does. they should cut off 00 funds. >> greta: i thought today that secretary kerry whether you agreed
operation, so you have the obama administration with people like joe biden and john kerry who spent years criticizing the bush administration for its unilateralism doing something that truly is unilateral as opposed to things done in the bush administration like the overthrow of saddam hussein that had dozens of coalition members along with them. >> what's the difference between doing it this way and dropping a drone on somebody in yemen that's on a kill list? >> there isn't any difference. the president has full constitutional authority to launch this attack against syria. >> you don't think he has to seek approval? >> absolutely not. >> you disagree with members of congress that want that approval. >> there's a political question whether he would be better off getting congressional approval under the theory in on the takeoff, in on the landing, but as a matter of constitutional law, there's absolutely no requirement. if congress doesn't like what he does, they should cut off the funds. >> i thought today secretary kerry, whether you agreed with him or not, looked presidential. i thought
to challenge her, joe biden on the democratic side and who is going to emerge on the republican side and the news media is going to be consumed with that and the press room behind me is going to be thinner and thinner and thinner for those daily bri briefings, less and less interest. so, it's enormous gamble. i can't help but think that the president and his aides looked at this and said, okay. there isn't a lot of support for this. we are getting some blow-back in congress. i still have a hard time thinking they couldn't just go ahead and do what they were going to do and let congress sort it out when they do finally, get around to returning to town. so i can't help come to the conclusion that they think they can win this vote, they think it's going to expose and exploit further divisions within the republican party. but again, getting back to the essential questions of life and death and national security here, for the president to repeatedly say that this is something in the core national interest of the united states and then to put it off for two weeks, you know, militarily, i d
as a candidate in 2007, 2008, both he and joe biden said specifically that no president can unilaterally go to war without congressional authority. today he tempered his words some and said, well, i've got the authority to do whatever i want, but i'm choosing to go to congress. well i don't see it that way. i don't believe he does have the authority, but presidents have in the past usurped this authority. the bottom line is, once he comes to congress, if it's voted down in congress, i believe that he will be stopped. i will do everything in my power to stop and to have the vote go against involves us in syria. the ram factiifications may be r america, bad for israel. i think there are a lot of things that could wind up happening in the middle east with our involvement that would be unintended and may make the situation worse. >> before i let you go, september was already a very crowded month for all of the things you have to do, just to kick them down. debt ceiling, farm bill, the nsa and the ever-looming implementation of obamacare and now syria on top of that. how will that impact what yo
of companies by vice president joe biden. we will show these to you now. >> good afternoon. 10 days ago the world watched in horror as men, women and children were massacred in syria in the worst chemical attack in the 21st century. thatrday they presented the syrian government was responsible for this attack on its own people. it shows them preparing to use chemical weapons, launching rockets in the highly populated suburbs of damascus, and acknowledging that a chemical weapons attack took place. all of this corporate's what the world can plainly see. hospitals overflowing with victims. terrible images of the dead. all told, well over 1000 people were murdered. several hundred of them were children. young girls and boys gassed to death by their own government. this attack is an assault on human community. it also presents a serious danger to our national security. it risks making a mockery of the global role vision on the use of chemical weapons. it endangers our friends and our partners along syria's border including israel, turkey, lebanon, and iraq. it leads to an escalating use of
come back and debate is this to get a yes or no. then he went off to golf with joe biden. seem likes an astonishing display of nonchalance on an issue of war and peace. it really is, charles krauthammer said earlier. >> of course, an entire book entitled "the amateur" at the president. look, green light for iran. i mean, who are allies in the region. now has to be seriously concerned about american conviction. >> i think they absolutely have to be concerned. there was reports that saudi arabia was going to russia to seek interests. they're moving away from the american orbit. they can't trust america. to act when they say something is necessary. i do think they see an american weakness. >> remember, hillary clinton wondered during the 2008 campaign whether president obama can hand al 3:00 a.m. now 0 a question whether he can handle a 3:00 p.m. call. this was not something that came up on him in the middle of nipt he knew about this red line since the issue back in august and hasn't sought authorization since then. august of 2012. hasn't sought to get authorization since then. seems h
